    Thank you! That it is XD
    Got some deals for a few at a time that I just couldn't give up.. you know how it is :p
    Got a bigger frag rack coming so I can cut the sps off the plugs and glue them to the rock, then let the bit left on the frag regrow on the rack.

    Just cut this guy up last week or so and its awesome to see it heal so fast! Even the tiny branches in the back have already encrusted into eachother!

    Thank you! Doing a little timelapse of it today.. hopefully it comes out ok! ;Droid

    Had it for about 6 months now. Started in my Fluval Evo V(pictured here. now just a softie tank more or less)! The xmas worms have definitely grown too! I wish I could get them to grow into other porites o_O i feel like xmas tree worms in a darth maul porietes rock would be ridiculous haha

    Most of the time you can pop the frag off of the plug, super glue is strong at holding the frag but a little pressure will usually make it let go of the plug :)

    Unless they are encrusted already, in which case you can do what you wanted to do :D

    I have the exact 2 powerheads and a HOB filter on my 20g high reef....do you get good movement in the tank having them on the back wall blasting the front glass like you do?

    I think it works nicely and the HOB really helps to give a base flow, then the powerheads just stir things up ontop of that. I can always see with the fuzzies how it is in the middle, definitely getting variable flow there :)
